  • George Carlin: One morning, Edward was waiting to pick some passengers from Thomas' train.
  • Edward: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Thomas? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • George Carlin: Sanged the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind about Johnny.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Thomas. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Bertie Bus in the terriying hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on the coach tour of something.
  • George Carlin: He clambered down.
  • Bertie: Stop, stop! I've got Thomas' passengers!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Bertie, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Edward was gone.
  • Bertie: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Bother Thomas' fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Bertie: I'll catch Edward or bust.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • George Carlin: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Bertie: I'll never be the same bus again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Bertie as he reached the top.
  • Bertie: Oh no! Edward's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Bertie toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • George Carlin: Bertie skitted into the yard.
  • Bertie: Wait, wait!
  • George Carlin: Cried Bertie. He was just in time to see Edward puffed away.
  • Bertie: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: After him quickly. Third time lucky you know. Do you think we'll catch em at the next station, driver?
  • Driver: There's a good chance.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Edward. I'll just make sure.
  • George Carlin: He spoke to the stationmaster. Bertie and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers, as Bertie chased after Edward once more.
  • Coaches: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the coaches as Edward snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Edward: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Edward.
  • Edward: Get in quickly please.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew the whistle and Edward's driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Bertie. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the conductor and driver what had happened.
  • Edward: I'm sorry about the chase, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Bertie: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Bertie.
  • Bertie: Late at junction. You didn't know about Thomas' passengers.
  • Edward: Peep peep! Goodbye, Bertie! We're off!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Edward.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers. Bertie raced back to tell Thomas that all was well.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Bertie, for keeping your promise.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're a very good friend indeed.
  • (A nameplate sequence happens and we begin Percy's Promise)
  • George Carlin: Every summer, the Island of Sodor was very busy. Holiday makers love the sight see. When the weather is fine, there's no better place to visit. Some people like to go to the mountains. Others like the valleys. Children love the seaside. One morning, Thomas was puffing along the line that runs by the coast. His two coaches Annie and Clarabel were packed with children going to the beach. Everyone was happy. Percy was taking some freight cars at the Harbour.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas. You look cheerful. I wish I can take children today instead of freight cars.
  • Thomas: They're in the vicar's Sunday school.
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm busy this evening, but the stationmaster says I can ask you to take the children home.
  • Percy: Of course I will.
  • George Carlin: Promised Percy. Later, Percy saw Harold.
  • Harold: Sorry, Percy. Can't talk. I'm on high alert.
  • Percy: Why?
  • Harold: Bad weather's due. My help's always needed. Might how you go, Percy.
  • Percy: Huh.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: As long I got rails to run on, I can go anywhere and any weather anyhow. Goodbye.
  • Edward: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Edward.
  • Edward: There's a storm coming.
  • Percy: A promise is a promise.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: No matter what the weather.
  • George Carlin: The children had a lovely day, but by tea time, dark clouds loomed ahead. Annie and Clarabel were glad when Percy arrived. He was just in time. The rain streamed down Percy's boiler.
  • Percy: Ugh!
  • George Carlin: He shivered and thought of his nice dry shed. Percy struggled on past coastal villages and into the countryside. The river was rising fast.
  • Percy: I wish I could see, I wish I could see!
  • George Carlin: Complained Percy as he battled against the rain. More trouble lay ahead.
  • Percy: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Percy.
  • Percy: The water's sloshing my fire!
  • George Carlin: Percy's driver and fireman had to find some more firewood.
  • Fireman: I'll have some of your floor boards, please.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman to the conductor.
  • Conductor: I only swept the floor this morning.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the conductor and he still help. Soon, Percy's fire was burning well. He felt warm and comfortable again. Then he saw Harold.
  • Percy: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: Harold's coming to laugh at me.
  • George Carlin: Something floated onto Percy's boiler.
  • Percy: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: He needed throw things.
  • Driver: It's a parachute!
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: Harold's dropping hot drinks from us.
  • Percy: Thank you, Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Harold: Good to be at service.
  • George Carlin: Replied Harold as buzzed away. The water lapped Percy's wheels. Percy was losing steam again, but he plunged bravely on.
  • Percy: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Percy: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He meant one more big effort, and at last exhausted by triumph, he brought the train home.
  • Thomas: Well done, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Thomas.
  • Thomas: You kept your promise, dispite everything!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived in Harold. First, he thanked the men, then Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Harold told me you are a wizard. He said he can beat you at somethings, but not a been on submarine. I don't know what you get onto sometimes, but I do know that you're a really useful engine.
  • Percy: Oh sir.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin No Sleep For Cranky)
  • Alec Baldwin: Brendam docks is one of the busiest dockyards on all the Island of Sodor. It's where ships and engines and cranes alike are busy day and night, every day of the year. But poor Cranky the Crane never gets a nap. He never gets to sleep early, he works all the time and his only company are the gulls that settle on his arm. So Cranky is always cranky.
  • Salty: Ahoy there, Cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Salty.
  • Cranky: Where have you been!?
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Cranky.
  • Salty: And a good day to you capn.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben arrive for work full of mischief.
  • Cranky: Hurry up!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Cranky.
  • Cranky: I haven't got all day.
  • Bill: You're no fun.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled Bill.
  • Cranky: You wouldn't be fun if you were stuck up here.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Cranky.
  • Bill: So that's why you're cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Ben: You're lonely.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben.
  • Cranky: I'm not!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky cranked.
  • Salty: So it's company you'd be needing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Salty.
  • Salty: Reminds me of a lonely old bank's lighthouse keeper.
  • Cranky: Not another one of your stories.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Cranky.
  • Bill and Ben: Oh please, Salty.
  • Alec Baldwin: They chimed.
  • Bill and Ben: We haven't heard it.
  • Salty: Thus in the middle of the wee naughty storm.
  • Alec Baldwin: Salty began.
  • Salty: A likes of which he sees once in a lifetime.
  • Alec Baldwin: This made Cranky very cranky. So cranky that he swung his arm around and dropped the pipes onto the tracks instead of the trucks.
  • Cranky: Whoops!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Cranky meekly.
  • Salty: You blown the main down, matey.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Salty. The engines were trapped.
  • Bill and Ben: You're gonna get into trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sang Bill and Ben. Sir Topham Hatt was in his office being measured for his new suit. When he heard the news, he left inmediately for the docks. Sir Topham Hatt knew that any delay at the docks could cause trouble.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You had made a terrible mess, Cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said sternly.
  • Cranky: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky whispered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You engines will have to stay here tonight until Harvey clears up this mess in the morning.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky's heart sank as Salty uttered those faithful words.
  • Salty: It reminds me of a story. It was a bitter cold winter. The brave little ship was stuck until the ice melted the next spring. He barely made it round the cape after a hundred scary days at sea without a scratch. He sailed into port and crashed his bout in 50 feet from my buffers. Luckily no one was hurt.
  • Cranky: Except my ears.
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Cranky. Salty spent all night telling tales of powerful storms, daring rescues and brave little ships. And when the sun rose, he was still talking and talking and talking.
  • Cranky: I can't take anymore.
  • Alec Baldwin: Groaned Cranky. Harvey the Crane Engine arrived.
  • Harvey: Sir Topham Hatt sent me to help clear away this mess.
  • Alec Baldwin: He puffed proudly. Cranky was so pleased the engines will be going soon, he forgot to be cranky.
  • Cranky: I'll never misbehave again.
  • Alec Baldwin: He promised.
  • Cranky: As long as i don't have to listen to anymore of Salty's stories.
  • Alec Baldwin: And after Harvey and the workmen had cleared the wreckage, Cranky worked hard all day. He carefully loaded the trucks, helped speed the engines on their way and he said please and thank you.
  • Thomas: This is new.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Thomas. But he had spoken too soon. Cranky couldn't help himself.
  • Percy: It was nice while it lasted.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy and all the engines laughed. But Cranky it was still cranky.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Edward The Really Useful Engine)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor are good at different things. Gordon is a very good express, Percy is good at carrying the mail and when Edward is not hauling freight cars, he is very good at being a back engine. When engines have heavy loads, Edward buffers up behind and helps push. But Edward is old. Some engines think this makes him unreliable.
  • Gordon: Edward is a useless old steam-pot.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon sniffed.
  • Gordon: He should be retired.
  • Percy: But he doesn't have tires.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said.
  • Thomas: Retired.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Means taken out of service.
  • Gordon: And not a moment too soon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon. And the other big engines agreed with him, but Percy was very upset. Later, his driver asked him why he looked so glum. Percy told him about Edward.
  • Percy: The big engines don't think he's useful anymore.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. Percy's driver saw Sir Topham Hatt and told him what Percy had said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I will attend to the matter immediately.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Sir Topham Hatt had a plan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The new loop line is completed.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said to Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to teach Stepney how to run it properly.
  • Edward: But sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: He asked.
  • Edward: Who will look after the freight cars?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Duck will do your work.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt replied. When the other engines heard Duck was going to help them, they were pleased.
  • Henry: Duck is very reliable.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Gordon: It makes no difference to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon pompously.
  • Gordon: I don't need a back engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he wheeshed away. Edward enjoyed working with Stepney. It was great fun delivering passengers to stations in the beautiful countryside. But Duck was not happy. The trucks were playing their silly games.
  • Troublesome Trucks: (singing) Duck should play with other ducks cause he's no good at pulling trucks. Quack, quack, quack, quack. Hold back, hold back.
  • Alec Baldwin: They giggled. Duck found himself going slower, and slower, and slower. Halfway up Gordon's Hill, his wheels stopped all together. Duck was stuck.
  • Duck's Driver: Oh, no.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Duck's Driver: This is Gordon's line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck's guard phoned the signalman to warn him.
  • Signalman: It's too late to switch Gordon to the middle line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: You'll have to flag him down.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon saw the guard.
  • Gordon: If i stop on this hill, i'll never get started again.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said crossly and he buffered up to Duck. Gordon tried to set off again, but his wheels spun and spun.
  • Gordon's Driver: It's no use. We need a back engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the driver.
  • Gordon's Driver: I'll send for Edward.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was cross. Edward was excited. He was going to be a back engine for two trains. Edward cheerfully buffered up and the strange train set off. They chuffed gently into the station.
  • Boy: Look at that!
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed a boy.
  • Boy: The back engine must be the strongest and the best.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was embarrassed. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severly to Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have set rude things about Edward. He proved today that he is useful reliable and very helpful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon felt very ashamed. The next morning, Gordon apologized.
  • Gordon: Thank you for helping me Edward.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: You really are a useful engine.
  • Edward: It's good to be back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Edward chuffed happily. Sir Topham Hatt's plan had worked. There was no more talk about Edward retiring.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Double Trouble)
  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful morning on the Island of Sodor. Thomas the Tank Engine's blue paint sparkled in a sunshine as he puffed happily along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: You look splendid.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Thomas.
  • Thomas: Blue is the only proper color for an engine.
  • Toby: Oh, i don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Percy: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • George Carlin: Added Percy.
  • Thomas: Well, well, anyway.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Blue is the only color for a really useful engine. Anyone knows that.
  • George Carlin: Percy said no more. He just grinned at Toby. Later, Thomas was resting when Percy arrived. A large hopper was loading his freight cars full of coal. Thomas was still being cheeky.
  • Thomas: Careful.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Thomas: Watch out with those silly cars.
  • Cars: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: Muttered the cars.
  • Thomas: And by the way.
  • George Carlin: Went on Thomas.
  • Thomas: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • George Carlin: The last load poured down.
  • Thomas: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: Get me out!
  • George Carlin: Percy was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Thomas' smart blue paint was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Percy: Ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Percy.
  • Percy: You don't look really useful now, Thomas. You look really disgraceful.
  • Thomas: I'm not disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Choked Thomas.
  • Thomas: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • George Carlin: It took so long to clean Thomas that he wasn't it time for his next train. Toby had to take Annie and Clarabel.
  • Annie: Poor Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Annie to Clarabel. They were most upset. Thomas was grumpy in the shed that night. Toby thought it made a great joke, but Percy was cross with Thomas for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Percy: Fancy a really useful blue engine like Thomas becoming a disgrace to Sir Topham Hatt's railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Thomas was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Percy bring his cars from the junction. The cars were heavy and Percy was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • George Carlin: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Percy found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Percy: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Percy.
  • Percy: Help!
  • George Carlin: The buffers were broken and Percy was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Thomas to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Thomas: Now Percy has learned his lesson too.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two engines made up their quarrel.
  • Percy: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: You do know that, don't you?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And I'm sorry I teased you. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Double Teething Troubles)
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben the Tank Engine twins work in the clay mines and quarries near brendam docks. Their work is important but they can be hot and dirty. Sometimes this makes the twins naughty. One morning, they were feeling very naughty indeed.
  • Bill: That's my line of cars!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Bill.
  • Ben: It's not, it's mine!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Ben.
  • Ben: Yours it's over there.
  • Bill: It's mine!
  • Ben: It's not!
  • Bill: It's mine!
  • Ben: It's not!
  • Alec Baldwin: Their friend BoCo was worried.
  • BoCo: Stop quarreling you two or the only thing you had left to share is...
  • (Crash)
  • BoCo: Trouble.
  • Bill: Silly!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Bill.
  • Ben: Silly yourself!
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled Ben.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bill and Ben, behave yourselves.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's clear to me that we need another diesel to help out. There's only one available. He's new and key to make an impression.
  • BoCo: If I were you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered BoCo.
  • BoCo: I can back to work right away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile Sir Topham Hatt was having doubts about his own decision.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I hope the new diesel doesn't cause even more confusion. He's bound to have teething troubles.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he was right.
  • Derek: Oh, my grease and oil. I wasn't expecting this hill. Oh, what's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: BoCo came to the rescue.
  • Derek: Sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the diesel.
  • Derek: I'm all hot and bothered. I've got teething troubles, you know.
  • Alec Baldwin: The news soon spread.
  • Thomas: Apparently it's teething troubles.
  • Alec Baldwin: Confided Thomas to Percy.
  • Percy: Hey, you two. This new diesel's got a toothache. Good luck.
  • Bill: Why does Percy want to wish us good luck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Bill.
  • Ben: Because he knows we'll need it. A diesel with a toothache must be the worst diesel of all.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then their manager spoke to them.
  • Manager: You will take your loads to the docks and rest there tonight. There's a lot of hard work to do tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: It was dark when the twins reached the docks. They left the freight cars by the key and scurried off to the shed.
  • Duck: You two looked glum.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Duck.
  • Bill: It's the new diesel's fault.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Bill.
  • Bill: He's got a toothache.
  • Duck: He hasn't got a toothache he's got teething troubles. That means he's new and this causes some problems. In his case it's his cooling system.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, the twins heard an unfamiliar whistle.
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, no! It's the new Diesel!
  • Alec Baldwin: And it was.
  • Derek: Hello. I'll sort this train out. You take the front and I'll push 'em behind. Ha, ha. What fun.
  • Alec Baldwin: All went well as they set off. Then they came to a hill.
  • Bill: Come on, come on! Push harder, you silly diesel!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted Bill. But the diesel couldn't push any harder.
  • Derek: I'm overheating again.
  • Bill: Oh, pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Bill.
  • Driver: You know what?
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed the driver.
  • Driver: Let's try and finish the journey anyway. It means we'll have to pull the diesel as well. Can you do it twins?
  • Bill and Ben: We'll try.
  • Alec Baldwin: And sure enough they could. That night, Sir Topham Hatt came to see them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Bill and Ben. I sent the new diesel back to the works. Can you manage alone?
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, yes sir.
  • Bill: BoCo.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Bill.
  • Bill: I'm sorry we were rude to you.
  • Ben: And...
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Ben.
  • Ben: The new diesel was really quite friendly.
  • Duck: And you know what friends do?
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured Duck.
  • Bill and Ben: Know what?
  • Duck: They always say good night to each other.
  • Alec Baldwin: And so they did, but they still chattered about the diesel and his teething troubles all night long.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin James Learns A Lesson)
  • George Carlin: James was enjoying his life on the Island of Sodor, but he still had a lot to learn.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're a special mixed traffic engine.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You can pull coaches or freight cars quite easily, but you must learn by your mistakes.
  • George Carlin: James knew what Sir Topham Hatt meant. He could well remember that dreadful accident on his first day.
  • Edward: Be careful with the coaches, James.
  • George Carlin: Said kind little Edward.
  • Edward: They don't like being bumped.
  • George Carlin: Everyone came to admire James.
  • James: I'm really a splendid engine.
  • George Carlin: He thought and suddenly let off steam.
  • James: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: A shower of water fell on Sir Topham's nice new top hat. Just then, the conductor blew his whistle and James thought they had better go.
  • James: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed to Edward.
  • Edward: Don't push, don't push!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. The coaches were grumbling too.
  • Coaches: Don't go so fast, don't go so fast!
  • George Carlin: But James wouldn't listen. When at last they stopped at the next station two coaches were beyond the platform. They have to go back to let the passengers out. But no one seems to know about Sir Topham's new hat so James felt happier. Presently they came to the station where Thomas was waiting with his two coaches.
  • Thomas: Hello, James.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Feeling better? That's good. Oh, that's my conductor's whistle. I must go. I don't know what Sir Topham Hatt to do without me to run this branch line.
  • George Carlin: And he puffed off importantly. Edward and James passed the field where James has had his accident. The fences were mended and the cows were back again. They ended their journey and rested before setting off for home. James was still wondering what Sir Topham would have to say about his new hat. Next morning, he spoke severly to James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If you can't behave, I shall take away your red coat and have you painted blue.
  • George Carlin: James didn't like that at all. He was very rough with the grumbling coaches as he brought them to the platform.
  • James: Don't talk, come on! Gordon never fetch his own coaches.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • James: And he's only painted blue.
  • George Carlin: To make James even more cross, this time no one came near him.
  • James: I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • James: They thought Gordon is the only engine who can pull coaches. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed James.
  • Coaches: You're going too fast, you're going to fast!
  • George Carlin: Replied the coaches. James laughed and tried to go faster, but the coaches wouldn't let him.
  • Coaches: We're going to stop, we're going to stop!
  • James: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: James asked his driver.
  • Driver: The brakes were on, leak in the pipe most likey. You banged the coaches enough to make a leak in anything.
  • Conductor: How should we mend it?
  • George Carlin: Asked the conductor.
  • Driver: We'll do it with newspaper and a leather bootlace.
  • George Carlin: Replied the driver.
  • Conductor: Well, where's the bootlace coming from?
  • George Carlin: Asked the conductor.
  • Driver: Ask the passengers.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Conductor: You have a leather bootlace there.
  • George Carlin: Said the Conductor to a smartly dressed man.
  • Conductor: Please give it to me.
